Kizimani | Kangundo Clinic
Location: Kangundo, KENYA
About the Facility:
Completed in July 2015, this health center serves an immediate community in Manyatta of about 20,000 and a wider community of the Manyatta/Kivaani area of about 100,000 people.
The Kangundo Clinic serves thousands of people who lack basic medical care. The project is designed with sensitivity towards the social fabric and culture of the region by creating a large shaded gathering area that encourages public interaction while providing privacy for the patients. The facility is divided into four exam rooms, storage room and a covered gathering area. The project is designed to promote natural ventilation through building for cooling, with large overhangs to provide shade for those waiting.
This rural nature of this community has long been a barrier for access to healthcare. The community has been impacted by HIV/AIDS and is now able to access much needed medications.
